Among these were several Regional Scholars- 
who had been selected to receive their coveted 
scholarships by regional alumni committees- 
and Drucilla Graves Davis, who earlier that 
month had received the annual Alumni Cup for 
her outstanding academic record and for her 
service to the College. Also featured was 
Victoria Lee Harris, a rising junior from Hano-/ 
vtT, Pa., who had recently been named the recip-

International Scholarship, which is funded by the 
Alumni Association. Miss Harris, a French and 
art history major, will spend next year studying 
at the Alliance Francaise in Paris, France. 

The highlights of the special alumni luncheon 
were the presentation of the Distinguished 
Alumnus Award (see story below) and the pre- 
sentation of a painting to the College by the 
Class of 1936. That painting, titled "Summer 
Afternoon," is by Barclay Sheaks, a renowned

Dr. Glen R. Thomas, Professor of American 
Studies, and Mrs. Mary Anne Pierce Myers, a 
graduating senior from Fredericl<sburg, receivec 
the two major annual awards during the tradi-

at Mary Washington College.

A Senior's View 

Impressions of Life at MWC 

Last fall, the Alumni Association sponsored 
a Classes - Chapter Work Shop for all enthu- 
siastic alumni volunteers. Highlights of the 
program included four presentations, by stu- 
dents, giving their impressions of life around 
the campus today. Debby Jordan, who was 
then the Senior representative to the Alumni 
Board of Directors, gave the following 
presentation - which the Board thought all 
alumni would like to read. 

Mary Washington College. . the only small, 
stale supported, residential, co-educational lib- 
eral arts college in Virginia. Used as an intro- 
duction to the Mary Washington catalog, lliat 
statement alone may entice one to look into 
Mary Washington, but does it really tell what 
Mary Washington is all about? The academic 
challenge, the honor system, and the lifestyles 
are three important aspects of the life at Mary 
Washington. Beth has discussed our honor sys- 
tem. Cindy the academic community, and Greg 
has given us a male perspective of life here at the 
college. And finally, my impressions of Mary 
Washington College . . With simplicity I might 
say. "I like it. " - but I can V stop there. After 
surviving through the overwhelming meetings 
Of freshman orientation and the first period of 
final exams. I was prepared to handle anything! 
I must admit, though, that first semester was 
quite a hectic one. Fire drills at 4:00 in the 
morning? How could I possibly wake up; close 
the windows: open the blinds, turn on the lights, 
and don myself with shoes, a towel, and shower 
cap. cautiously make my way. amongst 130 
other screaming freshman, down to the front 
porch of Virginia Dorm, all within 2 minutes? 
After awhile, though, it all came naturally - 
but it wasn 7 until our last fire drill freshman 
year that 1 noticed myself to be the sole wearer 
of a shower cap. Those junior counselors had 
done it again - and I was the fool! ! ! But our 
revenge was yet to come. As the junior class 
proudly accepted their Mary Washington 
College Rings in the spring of 14. project 
number one for the class of '77 was underway! 
We were not to be outdone by anyone before 
us in the "tradition of Junior Ring Week. " 
The highpoint of our first class project was 
the expression of our junior counselors as they 

happily tnarched down campus drive, only to 
find their bedrooms, neatly arranged in Ball 

Is that all we did for fun? Of course not! 
Fortunately class council kept us busy by 
sponsoring organized activities on weekends. 
Mixers. Keg Parlies. Mo vies, and a formal 
dance each semester. This gave us all an oppor- 
tunity to close the books, forget the papers, and 
go out for a good time The first mixer was a 
real experience - one I'll never forget! One 
week of ctsses had gone by - and males were 
scarce. I wondered who there would be to 
"mix with" at this affair in Ann Carter Lee Ball- 
room. It wasn 't long before I learned that men 
from everywhere imaginable had heard of our 
social function, and begun to "crawl out of the 
woodwork. " Contrary to what one may think 
of a predominantly women 's college, the social 
life was very lively. 

Seacobeck. I couldn't forget that aspect of 
student life. As a freshman, dining was the 
most enjoyable part of the day - we all attended 
three meals daily, endulging in numerous 
helpings of Sara Lee Pastries, delicious biscuits, 
and plates full offrench fries, while we solved 
the problems of the world. Was biology or 
drama a more marketable field? Did this weeks 
chemistry lab last three hows? Was Mary in- 
vited to U. Va. ? All of this was important, and 
the food was good, the company nice, and the 
atmosphere relaxing. It wasn 't until we went 
home in May, and stepped on the scales, that 
we realized - sophomore year must bring a 
termination to those long hours of dining! 

It was sad to see freshman year end - the 
carefree college life was over - and it was 
time to settle down. Sophomore year there 
were no excuses for neglecting to initial the 

Long about November it hit me . . . 
commonly diagnosed as "Sophomore Slump. " 
I decided the best cure for this dreadful disease 
was to ease upon the books a bit, and enjoy 
some good healthy fun! The swim team was 
the answer! I had not previously been involved 
in any of Mary Washington 's athletic programs 
and so decided to try one out. Because of a 
somewhat rusty stroke. I contributed little to 
the twim team, pointwise. but it was alot of 
fun and it cured my slump. I can proudly say 
I was a member of the 1975 Women 's Swimming 
Championship for small colleges in Virginia. 

As spring came sophomore year, a big 
decision was upon us. What would it be like 
to be a junior counselor in a freshman dorm? 
Weighing the possibilities of how to spend 
junior year became a common topic amongst 
the sophomore class. I personally wanted to 
follow in the footsteps of my junior coun- 
selors and pass on to the class of '79 the en- 
thusiasm that I share for Mary Washington. 
That in itself was a good enough reason, and 
so I applied for the position. Finally the 
counselors were chosen and I was among 
them. The plans began! 

Junior year . . .with 21 freshmen! It 
was great! From the first day to the last — 
/ knew I had the best hall. Somehow the 
counselors on fourth floor thought their 
hall to be better - but, no, Randolph fifth 
took the cake!! I couldn 't have had a more 
enjoyable experience than seeing a group of 
enthusiastic freshmen learn what college life 
is all about, and be able to help them along, 
share their enthusiasm and get them involved. 
They learned quickly, and in February I 
learned that I was no longer the knowledgable 
one! Junior Ring Walk had finally arrived. 
In all the excitement of receiving class rings 
and anticipating the Junior Ring Dance, we 
had no time to worry' about freshman pranks. 
Maybe I should have . . .The week began with 
a room stuffed ceiling to floor with newspapers: 
a blindfolded walk to the Yellow Caboose for 
steak, on Ihem, and the display of my bedroom 
on the porch of Randolph dorm. Being carried 
to Seacobeck in pajamas, with 21 tired voices 
singing "to breakfast we will go" culminated 
the week. But I wouldn 't have traded them for 
anything! Most satisfying was the note they 
left me during final exams in May - "thanks 
for everything. Mom. " 

Yes, junior year was a good one - and Mary 
Washington saw many changes. A co-ed dor- 
mitory, Westmoreland, housed both men and 
women. The attitude of the women toward 
the male students changed even more. It 
seemed to be widely accepted that the pop- 
ulation of men added positively to the student 

And anew year is now upon us — Senior 
year. What will it bring? Placement folders, 
G.R.E. 's, resumes, job interviews, and ulti- 
mately -graduation! Now that question we 
once pondered over in Seacobeck is important. 
Is biology or drama a more marketable fleld? 
But whether or not we step right into our life- 
time goal, upon graduation, 4 years at Mary 
Washington College could never be replaced, 
or forgotten. 

That 's life at Mary Washington College.
